Red to Wear:Wrap up and announcement


Dear Artists,
We would like to thank you all for taking part in the RED TO WEAR exhibition. For those of you who were able to visit the gallery we loved putting a face to the work and catching up with lots of old friends. For those of you who live in distant parts we would be delighted to see you in Sydney (and I’m sure that between Stanley Street Gallery and the very generous network of contemporary jewellers here in Sydney we would be able to offer you some accommodation).

In the initial brief for RED TO WEAR we expressed our interest in offering a solo exhibition. We have selected Christel van der Laan from Western Australia – congratulations. Christel’s work At Any Price and Dead Weight created a lot of interest and generated some very interesting conversations among the viewing public. We certainly look forward to seeing more of her work.

As you are probably already aware, the RED TO WEAR exhibition was for us, the first of many such exhibitions. We are very keen to host and curate exhibitions of contemporary jewellery. We would like to briefly explain how you could be involved:

Exhibitions like Red to Wear, that take up the whole of our gallery space can be discussed/proposed, however, there is also a section of the gallery we call The Tank which is available for solo, small group or themed shows, (if you have a look on line at some of the gallery images you will see The Tank). We call these exhibitions Tank Shows and would encourage artists to submit proposals for their work to be seen in this space.

We look forward to discussing this information in detail with you. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or to make contact. We are a friendly pair and as practicing artists have a good understanding of what it is like to approach galleries.

Warm regards
Merilyn and Liza
